ENDED! WIN! 1 of 3 The Boys Are Back DVD's

THE BOYS ARE BACK offers the moving tale of a single father suddenly responsible for raising two sons alone. Directed by Scott Hicks (Shine) and starring Clive Owen, the film is inspired by a true story of Australian Simon Carr. Bonus material includes a pictorial tour of the making of the film using Scott Hicks’ own photos, and a set visit with memoirist Simon Carr and his two sons.

BURBANK, California, November 20, 2009 — The Boys are Back, the deeply moving and often
funny tale of a man who finds himself suddenly responsible for raising two sons alone, comes to
DVD on January 26, 2010 from Miramax Films and Buena Vista Home Entertainment. The story of
this irreverent and independent sportswriter who suddenly faces single fatherhood is inspired by
the true story of Australian Simon Carr, The Boys are Back is an original and uplifting story of one
family’s journey. Exclusive bonus features include a behind-the-scenes photographic tour and a
visit with the three special guys who lived the story.

Clive Owen (Closer, Duplicity) heads up an accomplished cast that includes Laura Fraser (A
Knight’s Tale), Emma Booth (TV’s “The Circuit”) and George MacKay (Defiance). Directed by Scott
Hicks (Shine), The Boys Are Back is a 2009 Heartland Truly Moving Picture Award winner that
won the hearts of critics everywhere including Peter Travers of Rolling Stone who calls it “A funny,
touching and vital film…Clive Owen gives a heartfelt, award-caliber performance.”

DVD Bonus Features
• The Boys Are Back: A Photographic Journey — A picture is worth a 1,000 words as
director Scott Hicks takes us on a pictorial tour of the making of the film.
A Father and Two Sons, On Set — Simon Carr, whose memoir inspired the movie, and
his real-life sons visit the set. The death of his wife leaves wisecracking sportswriter Joe Warr (Clive Owen) with a curious six year-old (Nicholas McAnulty) and a rebellious teen from a previous marriage (George MacKay) to bring up in a household devoid of feminine influence. So Joe takes on parenting the only way he knows how—full throttle. With an exuberance born of necessity, he teaches his boys to meet the joy and fragility of life head on. The Boys Are Back chronicles the fierce love and loyalty the three Warr men discover for each other as they make their way through the trials of everyday life. The Boys Are Back is priced at $29.99 on DVD.
